1990 Mercury Cougar LS 3.8L V6
The best car a guy could ask for
Two ditches and an idiot that burned out her tranny in a mud hole, and she's still running strong.
The only problems I've had was her fuel pump at about 96,000 km, and her hinge pins and outside D/S handle.
This car is tough as nails. She's taken me through thick and thicker, starts in minus 30, and always comes back for more.
She isn't the fastest (the lack of a supercharger with the LS model), but she's a smooth ride. Her plush seats are an added plus, too.
The stock stereo system might leave you wanting if you're a bass head, but she suits my needs just fine, although the radio is getting old and kind of faulty with age.
The backseat has a lot of room for doing the no pants dance, too. ;)
It's hard to not fall in love with the Cougar. They're tough, reliable, and they have this *allure* that you can't deny. Even if you think they're ugly in the beginning, like I did, they win your heart.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
